Hawaii Wine Overview

Hawaii is a prolific agricultural state, and although vineyards here are not as common as pineapple groves, there are grapes grown here. Most of the Hawaiian islands are mountainous and the climate is warm and sunny, so grapes can thrive in Hawaii. There simply hasn’t been a wine movement like other states, and producing local wine doesn’t seem to be a priority.

At present, there are three wineries scattered among the Hawaiian islands. They are Tedeschi Vineyards on Maui, Volcano Winery on the big island and Diamond Head Winery. Volcano Winery is particularly known for using locally grown tropical fruit to either blend with grapes or directly produce distinctively Hawaiian wines. With only three wineries in Hawaii located on separate islands, there are no wine trails here.
